Local News by Gary Soto

Book Description

In thirteen stories full of wit and energy, Gary Soto illuminates the ordinary lives of young people. Meet Angel, who would rather fork over twenty bucks than have photos of his naked body plastered all over school; Philip, who discovers he has a "mechanical mind," whatever that means; Estela, known as Stinger, who rules Jose's heart "and "the racquetball court; and many other kids, all of them with problems as big as only a preteen can make them. Funny, touching, and wholly original, "Local News" is Gary Soto in top form."
